The word ugly...
is it the recent cliche?
Throwing it,
like its a hot- potato.
Afraid of pain,
so you throw it to someone else.

The word ugly is the new disease.
Once your contagious,
it slowly eats the thoughts about yourself.

Some affects can include,
suicidal thoughts, wrist- cutting,
depression, mid-night crying,
and possibly death.

It seems like in this world,
people dont care if they bring you down.
If it makes them feel good,
then they'll do it.

The only thing you can do is,
stand there and frown.
That's your only job.
Your useless in this world if your ugly.

Comments about Ugly by Brenda Aguirre

    I believe the ugliness belongs to those who judge others by the way they look. If there is just ONE person out there that thinks a person is beautiful, then how could anyone call then ugly. 'In the eye of the beholder..' The people that bring others down, are usually just trying to bring themselves up..they are the ones with the problem.

    Thankyou Brenda
